Watch them again: Spurs’ winning goals really were Champions League quality

By Harry Hotspur -

Spurs have managed to navigate their way out of Group D and will now have to wait until Monday of next week to discover who they will face in the knockout stages of the world’s most prestigious club competition.

Antonio Conte could only watch on from the stands, as Spurs absorbed wave after wave of attack from Olympique Marseille; understandably that didn’t sit well with one of the most animated coaches in the game.

The final 16 are; Bayern Munich, Benfica, Chelsea, Club Brugge, Dortmund, Frankfurt, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Manchester City, Napoli, Paris Saint-Germain, Porto, Real Madrid, and Tottenham!

Forgot this one (& thanks for putting up the goals although I would have liked to dissect the OM goal as well).
One thing struck me in the winner.
Harry gets the ball and provides a nice pass to The Hoj but he doesnt follow up for the return which obvs. wasnt needed on this occasion but I was surprised to see him jog forwards..
Him & Son are not on top form something isnt right – maybe eyes on WC?

A couple of points:-
I have never known such pessimism after a late victory so take it from me it is not just here that people are a bit “meh” after that most are saying the same thing about not turning up for 45 mins and there are only a limited number of times you can limp through a game. Conte has done his 12 months and we have gone backwards I wish Einstein was still posting on here to tell us all is well.
I watched 2 minutes of Hereford v Portsmouth last night and one team broke and the attack was broken up and instead of passing back the defender passed to a player slighlty forward and he in turn passed to a player on the wing he knocked in a cross.
Why do we persist in this ping pong at the back when it has caused so many problems (that even Einstein couldnt argue against) Dire dithering Sanchez playing the clown even Hugo shaking all over.
Boot the fecker upfield and even if it fails to reach a Spurs player it gives time to regroup.

Credit to the players for pulling off a seemingly improbable comeback however, this Spurs team is very poor footballing-wise, and an accident waiting to happen. 150m to play like Stoke of the early 2000s? Spurs need many more “footballers” and fewer tanks.
IMO Bentacour, Bissouma, Romero are the only real ballers who can retain possession under pressure and should be the foundation of the team.
If Conte keeps up his playing style, whatever his reputation, I’m afraid he’s got to go.

Last minute winners are like putting Vanish on tawdry well earned stains..not only is it cleansing it allows people to forget the “absolute state of it “ when such stains were achieved.
Im also reading Simeone €700,000 a week is being lined up to replace Conte ..these writers need a night on Butane to sort themselves out..

Tottenham have come up with the football equivalent of the rope-a-dope…just as Ali wore Foreman out in the rumble in the jungle to go on and win.. Tottenham now play possum for the first half of games wearing out the opposition before landing the killer goal..
I must remember to only tune in for the second half in future 😁

We played for 10 minutes, dominated and scored.
Then sat back again like clueless morons.
Why?

We were extremely lucky and, somehow, keep papering over the crevices (which are substantial).

What a thoroughly frustrating and life shortening team we are to watch (and have been since we sold Dembele).

I dont know what else to say due to having been mind numbed over the last few years.
I should be happy, but I am just drained (again).

You’re right about Dembele, he was a player that needed replacing with similar quality. Same could be said for many In that side who got older.

Jan, Toby, Walker (and even his replacement Trippier), Rose, Eriksen. We just don’t have players of that quality anymore, even they were picked up cheap and developed by Poch. The decline has been shocking and the transfer activity even more shocking in its inadequacy. Our owners are chancers and con-men who have no interest in winning trophies…

Milinkovic-Savic not for sale amid Juventus links, says Lazio owner
comment image?w=550&quality=80&strip=all
Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has not agreed a January move to Juventus, according to Lazio owner Claudio Lotito.
The Serbian midfielder has impressed this season with three goals and seven assists in his nine Serie A games, helping Maurizio Sarri’s side climb to third. 
Such form is said to have piqued the interest of Juventus, with reports suggesting the Bianconeri will plan to offer up to €60million, including bonuses.
But Lotito told Il Messaggero: “I have no agreement with his agent [Mateja] Kezman to sell him to Juventus or anyone else in the winter.
“On the contrary, he is now worth €120m, not €100m. Every month the price goes up.”

I hope this reassures you that Levy won’t be buying him now or at any time in the future.

I only get spasms of rage when Levy’s name is mentioned

Either that or I let out a tired sigh of resignation, every time we stall on a deal, or miss out on an opportunity, and at the end of every transfer window…

This bloke is known as the Italian Daniel Levy so if the player is worth £50m he will listen to offers above £100m

Yes H, the winning goals were indeed of Champions League quality! It’s just unfortunate that most of what was served up around them, consistent with our recent performances, wasn’t even of Championship winning quality!

Same pattern, dreadful in the first half but an improvement in the second half without looking entirely convincing. I couldn’t understand why Sessegnon was played on the right as he palpably has no right foot and Hoddle was saying the exact same thing. I also wondered why the Marseille player wasn’t at least booked for the challenge on Son which I thought was dangerous.
Anyway, despite our mediocrity, we have progressed to the next stage and all will be revealed next Monday. No doubt the incremental income derived from being in the next stage will be splurged on reinforcements in the January window as they are sorely needed. Only joking!

lol … given our injury situation, the unknown effects of the condensed World Cup schedule on our star players and the combustibility of Antonio, I suspect that our diminutive supremo will unleash another well publicised ENIC war chest, for PR purposes, to manipulate the gullible amongst the fan base and to keep Antonio onside with the program. Notwithstanding the motive, a couple of Bentancur and Kulu Mk 2’s in the January window however would do nicely!

Some facts are not debatable and the Summer war chest of £150m was stated as for on field and off field purchases whatever off field were (maybe Romero?)

Yes, I have had more fun with food poisoning than watching the first half! Utterly dreadful. However in classic, ‘game of two halves’, cliche fashion, we were significantly better in the second stanza. Even then some of our close control in our own half and passing out of defence, especially, was of Sunday pub league standard.
